The skyline of Manhattan is unequalled in its scope and splendor. At night, when the lights of the city outnumber… and outshine… the stars in the sky, few sights on Earth can match its radiance. Over the years it has been an inspiration for many of our finest authors and artists.

Through window walls overlooking the East River, Giando on the Water enjoys breathtaking, panoramic views of the city and three world-famous bridges. With this as our inspiration, we created a dining experience that delights guests with exquisitely prepared cuisine presented in an atmosphere of sophistication and elegance. How could we do anything less?

For an exceptional wedding that will be spoken of for years to come, no other venue in New York compares to Giando on the Water. Our planners will transform your most special event into an unforgettable experience that each of your guests will savor.

But Giando is a fine restaurant, too. Visit us anytime; we’re open every day of the week. Giando is the perfect setting for an intimate dinner… a spectacular way to welcome out-of-town clients or guests to our city… a memorable and exciting venue for the grandest of celebrations… a uniquely New York treasure for you to enjoy and speak of for years to come.

At Giando we have the recipe for beautiful memories. .

    Perfect Day

    Perfection. That one word sums up the experience of my daughter’s wedding. To start with, Giando’s has a knockout view of the NYC skyline, punctuated by the Williamsburg Bridge that looms just outside its window. Boats drift by, and sea birds dance in the breezes that come off the East River. High ceilings and gorgeous chandeliers make the room a spectacular choice for a festive occasion. The room is all windows, creating a feeling of expansiveness. Guest after guest commented on the spectacular setting.

    And the food is excellent. We had dinner there a few times before the wedding and especially loved the penne a la vodka, Caesar salad, chicken Marsala, baked clams, eggplant parmigiana, and fish. All delicious! And at night, the city sparkles like a grand jewel, enhancing the dining experience. Magnificent.

    In terms of planning the afternoon wedding, the manager, Joe, was extremely warm and welcoming, and guided us with professionalism and charm; he also checked in with us many times throughout the wedding to make sure we were completely happy, and we were. The maitre d', Rodrigo, was both efficient and gracious in overseeing the day went without a hitch, and the entire staff was wonderful. The food came out hot, which is not an easy task at a large gathering, and the bar area served quickly, without having guests waiting endlessly. The whole day could not have gone better!

    Highly recommend!

    Spectacular Venue

    We couldn't have dreamed of a better wedding!! Giando is a truly breathtaking venue - you cannot beat the views! Plus, the food and service are top notch. We got married 3 weeks ago and people are still talking about the food at our wedding. Joe was amazing to work with throughout the process, including our COVID reschedule. Carmen, Liz, and Victor were all incredible during the actual event. We loved every second of our wedding and are SO happy we chose Giando. We HIGHLY recommend booking your wedding (or any other event) at Giando!
